After very successful trip last  January , we are running the Isle of Mull Wildlife Photography Workshop again in dec 2017 and in January 2018. We had some great success with photographing the local species around the island particularly with the Eurasian  otter. Included is four nights accomodation and food , guide and transport for the tour on Mull. 

We have had great  success on my workshops to the Isle of Mull in recent years getting very close to the illusive Eurasian otter, and the red deer. Come along to the Isle of Mull and experience the fantastic wildlife the island has to offer Eurasian otter, red deer, fallow deer, feral goat, common buzzards and there may be opportunities to get the white-tailed and golden eagles.

The group size is very small, only three people. This enables us to get close to the target species and give good opportunities for better tuition. The days will be spent searching around the sea lochs for the otters, Lochbuie, Loch Scridain, Loch Na Keal and Loch Spelvie in particular for the Eurasian otter with many stopping off points to observe red deer, feral goats, fallow deer, buzzards and eagles.

Bring your laptop along and in the evenings we can look at the pictures taken during the day and give advice on processing the images using Adobe Photoshop.

Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981

The eurasian otter is protected by the Wildlife and Countryside act 1981 schedule 5 and 6, and as such you are responsible for your own  actions in proximity to the otters. As a wildlife photographer morally it is not acceptable to disturb the otters when taking photographs. If you behave in an inappropriate manner and disturb the otters you may be asked to leave the workshop without recompense.
